We're going to cut to the chase, Brisbane, 'cause boy do we have some EPIC news for you. The folks behind The Tivoli, The Triffid and Splendour in the Grass are teaming up to build a brand new venue for gigs, events and productions. Oh. My. God.
Brunswick Street Mall boasts a plethora of bars, weekend markets and an annual festival, but it doesn't have a permanent indoor space where thousands of people can watch a band or show. The Tivoli and the Triffid have capacities well below the multi-thousands, and that's why these music masterminds have helped us out big time with a new venue said to hold up to 3,300. Holy guacamole.
Aesthetically, the venue will reflect the modernised 50s design that the Triffid boasts already, as well as a bunch of food and beverage outlets alongside the theatre and function space in the same retro style.
Keep and eye out for construction on 312 Brunswick Street around January of next year. Most of the other details are being kept shtum, but for now all we know is this $40 million project will be freakin' mind-blowing.
Gear up Brisbane and get your dancing shoes ready... your next gig will be one you'll want to remember!
Where: 312 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley
